Monster Headphones Are Candy For Your Ears

posted by Momo Fali on October 3, 2013


Look familiar? This is what I see every time I get ready to go for a run; a pile of earbuds that take me 10 minutes to get untangled. I’ve tried wrapping them up nicely, but it never fails they end up a jumbled mess in the drawer. To top it off, they’re not even comfortable. Half the time, I just go out the door without anything to listen to. But, running – and exercising in general – is easier for me with good music. So, I went out and bought these inexpensive headphones. They’re comfortable and they store up nice and neat so I can grab them and go.

Well, I could do that before they broke. Sigh. Clearly I needed something comfortable and durable and that’s exactly what I got from these.


aren’t they pretty?


Let me just tell you that if you listen to music with anything in, or on, your ears, you don’t realize the discomfort you’ve been dealing with until you put a pair of Monster N-TUNE headphones on. This is coming from someone who lives in yoga pants most of the time. I know comfort.

The bonuses? Great sound, awesome colors, and a built-in ControlTalk remote that lets you control your phone and your music, allowing you to easily pause your track and receive calls. Not that I can sufficiently breathe to stop and take a call when I’m running, but maybe someday I will. A girl can dream! At the very least, I can sit on my couch and listen to podcasts. Monster N-TUNES are made for athletes and geeks, alike!

Now my biggest problem isn’t tangled cords; it’s keeping these Monster headphones out of the hands of my 14 year old. Fortunately for her, Christmas is coming and this is a gift I know she’ll love and use all the time. They won’t get crumpled up and thrown in the back of her closet like last years jeans that she HAD to have.

And, fortunately for you – well, actually 25 of you – we’re giving away 25 sets of Monster headphones! Just click over to the Monster Headphones page on and let us know your favorite NTunes color in the comments for a chance to win!

    I would be happy with red, green, or blue, but I think blue’s probably my favorite.

    Green just speaks to me…of course, so do the voices in my head…but hey… 🙂

    If I win the purple, my husband and sons will be less likely to steal them 🙂

  • Hockeymandad

    Candy Tangerine for me!!!

  • Sarah M.

    Candy Blue!

  • Lindsay

    I would love the green color!!

  • Heather

    That red is really beautiful!

  • Catherine

    The Candy Tangerine ones are my favourite – they will colour-coordinate with my nail varnish!

  • Gina Sorrentino


  • Deb

    Oooh, green!

  • Casey

    Maybe if I had these, I wouldn’t embarrass the whole office with the way too loud hip hop music coming out of my office all day. That would RULE.

    Purple. Obviously.

    What color do you have?

  • andy

    Those Rock!! I love me the purple ones.

  • Tina

    Love the orange!

  • Anne Weber-Falk

    Purple or green so they really stand out at home. Then they won’t get so lost in all stuff.

  • Ashley

    That blue is SO pretty! I want to start running, but have a fear of having a heart attack on my first attempt… at 26 yrs of age. HA! I need to get over that fear and just do it. I applaud you and all the other runners out there. 🙂 Enjoy the new ‘phones!

  • Jaquise Jones

    Purple! Definitely purple!

  • Jennifer in Spring, TX

    I adore the purple ones!

  • Elizabeth

    Red. And orange. They’re both lovely! So, wearing these running; it doesn’t feel like a huge thing sitting on your head? I don’t mind earbuds, but my husband gave me the new ones from apple for my b-day and they seem more comfortable. I’d be interested in these for my son, who finds all earbuds uncomfortable. Thank you for doing this, but mostly thank you for this blog; I dearly love reading here, though I apologize for being a shameless lurker.

  • Mindydana H

    Oooooh, red! Definitely red. Earbuds do not stay in my ears and I haven’t owned headphones since the 80’s. I’d love to give these a try!

  • Sara

    Red, baby. Earbuds give me a headache….these would be divine!!

  • Kate

    I love the blue ones!

  • unmitigated me

    Love these! My favorite is the orange ones. Why does everything else have a normal name, but orange is Candy Tangerine?

  • Michelle Longo

    I like the blue, but really I’m not picky. I’d take any of them!

  • Sandy in DE

    They’re all so pretty, but the blue is my favorite.

  • Courtney

    Candy Red!

  • Deb

    The Red ROCKS!!!!!! Thx for the giveaway!!!! LOVE YOUR BLOG it is amazing!!!!

  • AnneG

    Tough choice but I choose the Candy Blue.

  • Brigid

    I love the blue! Red would clash with my hair, and green would make me look Christmasy. And I hear Royal Blue is the new Black…

  • Amie

    Oh man, those candy tangerine ones would look sweet with my orange candy skull iPhone case. Might actually make me WANT to go out and run. Okay, probably not…but they also would look good in my very orange basement. And they’d match the sweater I’m wearing today. And the coffee mug I’m drinking out of. I think I may have an obsession with orange…

  • Rachel

    The purple!! My fav 🙂

  • Sarah S

    Red is the best color! 🙂

  • Laura

    The red are super snazzy and easy to find.

  • Caroline

    Any of the colors would make my work outs easier and more fun! But I think I like the green! Thanks for the opportunity!

  • Molly doughty

    I love the blue ones. They are so amazing.

  • Brogan Smith

    As I sat there reading my comic book, listening to my music on the packaged iPhone headphones, I had a thought… This sucks. These things hurt my ears and the cord kept getting in my way when I went to turn the page. I can’t be expected to deal with this nuisance when I need to turn the page swiftly so that I can see if Batman escaped the giant death robot. Unacceptable.

    I can’t help but imagine how much better my geek time could be with a pair of RED Monster N-TUNE HD On-Ear Headphones.

    Help me, help Batman.

  • Roseanne

    Love the purple ones!

  • Lynn

    My first comment disappeared, but I still like the candy blue!

  • Meadow


  • Kali

    Oooh, purple!

  • sue

    I have the same rats nest as you! I’d love the red…it would show up and I could easily find them (a real bonus for me!)

  • Tabatha

    PUPRLE, DUH. 🙂

  • Rhea

    It’s hard to choose a favorite color, because they all look amazing. I love the red the most though.

    Also, I tweeted!

  • Lisa Daly

    I would go with red or purple! Love the wireless feature! I too hate the cords!

  • Malia

    I’m all about orange lately so I suspect I would go for the Candy Tangerine ones!

  • Malia

    tweet tweet –

  • lori

    Hard to choose as each of my kids would chose a different color, but I guess purple would be good.

  • Amy Lee

    The candy green ones!!

  • Vikki

    Definitely red! I have been wanting some headphones like this for a long time!

  • Tabathia B

    I like the candy blue
